Updated flammability guides available

The British Furniture Confederation flammability guides have been updated by FIRA to reflect changes to the UK's Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations (UKFFFSR) published in 2010, and the subsequent changes to the two main fire safety standards for upholstered furniture - BS 7176 (requirements for contract upholstery products) and BS 7177 (requirements for mattresses), both of which were amended in 2011.

The current Regulations are in fact being reviewed by government and Matthew O'Flynn from Meadowmead is representing the BFM in these discussions.
